Senator Olympia Snowe called on by opponent to resign

The U.S. Department of Justice joined a lawsuit againt Olympia Snowe’s  husband, former Maine Gov. John McKernan. The suit alleges that McKernan had defrauded the government of taxpayers’ money, which was intended for financial aid for students.

Maine Republican Senate candidate Scott D’Amboise, who is challenging sitting Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe in the upcoming 2012 primary, called on Snowe to resign from her seat immediately.

“Olympia Snowe owes us two things – an explanation and a letter of resignation. Instead, she isholed up in her ornate Washington, D.C. office refusing to explain what she knew and when she knew it,” D’Amboise said in his statement. “How can your spouse bring in millions of dollars without asking him how he was making all that money? Olympia is a smart lady. She had to know something was fishy about how her husband was doing business.”

D’Amboise has identified himself as a Tea Party candidate.

Ms. Snowe McKernan votes with democrats almost 100 percent of the time.  I have been following senate votes of any number of issues for the last three years, and her name, along with Susan Collins, pops up almost every time the democrats need a couple of votes to carry an issue.  A true RINO.

    I think you will be ill served by slamming this issue hard. I agree entirely with your take on it, BUT most people are ill informed and not ready to believe they have been wrong all these years. Most people detest mud slinging even when they agree with you that the opposition is the bad guy. Investigate and enlighten. But don’t attack. The truth will stand on it’s own. Shine the light but let people decide for themselves what it is they see. A very similar case in Mass. just got decided totally absolving culpability of the spouse that is in the same position as Olympia. If you can’t win a legal case it is better to let the public work it out for themselves or you look like a sour grapes whiner.

    Haha. You say let everybody work it out for themselves, but you don’t hesitate to say I am a sour grapes whiner throwing mud – what else?
    But, read what I said again. I did not even express an opinion on the lawsuit, guilt, innocence, or anything close. I posted and commented on an article saying the DOJ had joined a lawsuit against Ms. Snowe’s husband alleging fraud and misuse of tax money and that her opponent had called for her resignation. Then I linked to the article in the Daily Caller.
    I said Ms. Snowe is a RINO and votes with the democrats to give them the votes they need and she does it a lot on some very important issues. That is a fact and a matter of record.

    the fact that you called for an immediate resignation, restitution and apology kinda sorta says you expressed your opinion of her guilt or innocence. I did not say you were a whiner, only that it would look that way.
    Besides I was commenting on D’amboise comments , not yours!! and yes I supported this too quickly, I should have agreed after adding the caveat “if this turns out to be true”
    hate to break it to you but It really wasn’t about you(sorry) it was about what D’amboise said.
